Testimonial page quotes
From Upscope testimonials page.
“We especially love using the tool to show off our features in walkthroughs”
“The ability to educate a user on unfamiliar functionality using the spotlight tool has been incredibly beneficial in saving time”
“Upscope was easily the biggest quality of life improvement in my support work. Because of it I longer have to rely on my guesswork or my customer’s technical skill”
“So much easier and more time efficient than trying to get them to send us screenshots!”
“Upscope saves our support staff an enormous amount of time. Instead of sending emails back and forth or having confusing phone calls, our team simply logs into Upscope and gets an instant view of what is happening and can give a quick tutorial to the customer.”
Overview and key questions
What is it?
Companies supporting customers using Intercom sometimes need to see the user’s screen. With Upscope, they can click a ‘screenshare’ link in the Intercom system on the right hand side during a conversation and see it. No user install required. Instant screen viewing.
See the comparison chart below on how co-browsing is the new modern form of screen sharing built for live chat.
Can I ask for the user’s permission before viewing their screen? Yes.
